The bandage applicator is a 3cm diameter chrome wire frame applicator for applying Tubigrip tubular bandage size C (medium arms and small ankles) or Tubegauz tubular bandage size 01 (fingers). The bandage applicator works by sliding the entire measured tubular bandage onto the outside of the applicator and slip it over the limb. Pull off one end of the bandage at the start point and slide the applicator over the limb while releasing the bandage slowly. Get to the far side and double back on yourself to finish where you started. The applicator can be slid off, leaving the bandage on the limb while covering a dressing or compressing a swollen or painful joint without increased pain.
